Rucking a Muck

I’ve been overweight for quite some time now, almost two years since I gave birth to Crab. Since his birth in August 2015, I’ve dropped 40lbs, but I had hoped to be closer to my normal last summer. Alas, I’ve missed the boat on reaching that goal, nor the one...

Once Upon a Time I was a Runner

I remember it fondly. I used to go out for runs in peace and quiet. Listen to podcasts and feel accomplished. Then something changed. I followed the elimination diet, I felt so much better, and I no longer felt motivated to run to feel better. I already felt better without...

This morning I ran the first ever Asbury Park Santa 5k Run. It was a sweltering 25 degrees outside, and you know how much I just love cold weather. I don’t mind it if I’m running, but I despise it otherwise. Give me 70 degrees every day of the year....
